Please read through the following information. It will help to answer many questions you have had about the end of the school year and other logistics.
Virtual Summer School:
Statewide Exams and CPS Algebra Exit Exam:All statewide exams are cancelled for 2019-2020 this includes CPS yearly Algebra Exit Exam. I need parents to be patient and understand the “old normal” will not occur this school year. When CPS make a determination for CPS issued exams and the 2020-2021 criteria for applying to high schools, I will provide the information to families. CPS High Schools will make arrangements to offer placement exams for graduating 8th graders. CPS is offering a Summer of Algebra program. More details will be sent at a later date.
Summer Camp: South Loop will not offer Summer Camp this summer.
Retrieving items from Locker: The three buildings underwent a deep sterilizing cleansing. We have less than 10 staff members in two buildings and one staff member in one building. I want to continue to limit the number of people entering the buildings at this time to keep us safe. My target date for retrieval is the first week of August. The items will remain in the lockers and desk until this time.
YearbookYearbook distribution will begin in late June. Email blast will he sent when yearbooks are available for pick up. Order your yearbook by June 1st

School year 2020-2021: At this time CPS has not made a determination for opening school year 2020-2021. There are several options being researched: Full return to school, Full remote learning, and Staggered schedules are a few options. CPS will continue to monitor the recommendation of IDPH and CDC.
